BACKGROUND To optimize the image reconstruction phase of multidetector-row computed tomography (MDCT) coronary angiography according to the heart rate is crucial. METHODS AND RESULTS Scan data were reconstructed for 10 different phases in 58 sequential patients who underwent 8-row cardiac MDCT. The obtained images were scored and compared in terms of motion artifacts and visibility of the vessels, and moreover, ECG record-based evaluations were added for clarification of the temporal… CONTINUE READING
